Pre-Surgical & Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
Pre-surgical rehabilitation is designed to prepare the patient physically for surgery, but there are many mental benefits. Improving your body’s ability to heal itself before surgery can help speed recovery thereafter. Post-surgical rehabilitation is designed to improve range of motion, manage pain, and reduce swelling after surgery. The physical therapist will create a specific treatment plan for each patient’s pre and/or post-surgery needs.
Back pain can be immobilizing. Whether you suffer from acute back pain or chronic back pain, physical therapy and the right treatment plan can help reduce the pain and increase mobility.

Hip pain can stem from many causes. The ligaments and muscles that support the hip joint can become strained over time or injured with impact. Some of us carry weight on our hips, play sports, or have jobs that require repetitive movement. Physical therapy can relieve pain through regular exercise and other proven treatments.
Injuries and Re-injuries
Sports injuries, car accident injuries, and slip and fall injuries can happen to anyone. We provide physical therapy treatment to reduce your pain and accelerate the healing process. Physical therapy after an injury can reduce the risk of re-injury. Your physical therapist can teach you exercises and healthy habits to help you heal if that does happen.
Car Accident Injuries
Car accident injuries can take time to heal. You might experience anything from bruises and strains to fractures, lacerations or whiplash. No matter what the injury, your physical therapist will work with you to help you recover at your own pace.
Work Injuries & Workers’ Compensation
Work injuries have the added complication of dealing with worker’s compensation claims and employer requirements. Physical Therapy Now will create an active treatment plan to get you safely back to work after you have recovered.

Physical therapy aims to use a combination of approved medications, exercise, massage, and other treatments to help you reduce or eliminate the pain.
Loss of Motion
Loss of motion can occur due to an injury, a sedentary lifestyle, or a chronic medical condition such as arthritis. In the case of adhesive capsulitis or “frozen shoulder,” sometimes there is little to no explanation. Physical therapy exercise in the clinic and at home can improve the range of motion, reduce pain, and get your strength back.
